  • These Cortrex® Vegetarian Capsules by Thorne Research offer multi-faceted nutritional support to promote healthy adrenal function‚ which can support the body’s natural response to stress. Cortrex was designed to supply the body with nutrient‚ botanical and glandular nutrition to help the adrenal system do its job. This supplement is believed to help support and maintain both mental and physical stamina. And‚ as you’ve come to expect from the experts at Thorne Research‚ Cortrex is made to conform to the utmost quality standards. This supplement is free of preservatives‚ lubricants‚ diluents‚ and lubricants.

    What is Cortisol?

    Cortisol is a hormone that is naturally produced by the body‚ in the adrenal glands‚ to deal with periods of stress. It is essential for regulating blood sugar and maintaining fertility‚ immune functionality and overall mental and physical stamina. Under normal circumstances‚ the body’s adrenal glands are built to cope with the demands that life puts on us. However‚ when you’re faced with periods of chronic stress‚ your adrenal glands can become tired from all the extra work. This can eventually lead to problems that can be seen throughout the entire body.

    When the body is short on cortisol‚ you may feel tired or run down on a regular basis. You may also feel muscle weakness and joint pain‚ or you may experience unexplained weight loss.

    How Do Adrenal Glandular Tissue Extracts Help?

    Adrenal glandular tissue extracts help by supporting healthy cortisol levels and immune system function. This is because these tissue extracts play an essential role in supporting the adrenal glands. Cortrex‚ by Thorne Research‚ delivers a formulation of adrenal glandulars along with nutrients to best support your overall adrenal function and allow you to maintain optimal cortisol levels.

    In this supplement‚ whole adrenal tissue and adrenal cortex make up part of the formulation that specifically is designed to tonify the adrenal glands.

    Supporting Ingredients in Thorne Research’s Cortrex

    Licorice root (also known as Glycyrrhiza glabra) was included for its modulating effect on cortisol activity. Among all herbal remedies‚ licorice root is believed to be most effective at modulating cortisol. It has been used for centuries in traditional Chinese medicine because practitioners believe it can enhance the potency of any cortisol that is being produced by the body by inhibiting the breakdown of cortisol in the liver.

    Whenever treating a condition in the body whereby a system seems to be malfunctioning‚ it is important to ensure the body has adequate nutrition to support such functions. This is why Thorne Research includes vitamins in its Cortrex supplement. The specific vitamins that were included were chosen because of their supportive and strengthening roles in optimizing adrenal function. Those vitamins include zinc‚ ascorbic acid (pure vitamin C)‚ thiamine (vitamin B1)‚ riboflavin‚ phosphate (vitamin B2 in its active form)‚ pantothenic acid (vitamin B5) and pyridoxal phosphate (vitamin B6 in its active form).

    Great for Chronic Fatigue and Brain Fog!

    I have been challenged by chronic fatigue and fibromyalgia for 7 years now. Always looking for ways to improve my energy and clarity, I went for Cortrex by Thorne Research as well as the Royal Maca to balance out my hormones - 51 female. Together they have made a noticeable difference!

    Pros

      Easy to take. Felt a difference in about 2-3 weeks. Helped create good energy base. GREAT PRICE from Pure Formulas. Very impressed.

    Cons

      Nothing.

    I would recommend this item to a friend.

    Cortrex Works

    My husband is anemic and was hardly functional with MDS. Not only did Cortrex by Thorne Research (recommended by our homeopathic doctor) give him more endurance but has made a difference in his blood work. It is a great go-to for anyone who is under stress which exhausts the adrenals.

    Pros

      There are stronger adrenal supplements but this is a great basic one because the price is so reasonable!

    Cons

    I would recommend this item to a friend.

    Good product

    I forgot to take this pill today and I was dragging at work today so I know it must be working! I used to take Isocort til they took it off the market. This looked good so gave it a try. I am pleased with it and the price and will continue to use. Thank you Pure Formula.

    I was experiencing very tired and sluggish and my chiropractor told me to order Cortrex. I started taking Cortrex and instantly started feeling myself again. I would recommend Cortrex to anyone whos adrenal glands are not working properly.

    So far so good!

    Ive only taken Cortrex for about a week but Im already feeling positive results. I ordered Cortrex to help strengthen my adrenals due to a severe stress that occurred about two years ago. Ive heard only good things about Thorne and I have two friends who use their supplements. Im happy I bought Cortrex and Im confident that in time Im going to feel even better.

    Pros

      Easy on my stomach No strange/bad taste Easy to swallow Decent price point

    Cons

    I would recommend this item to a friend.

    good but not great

    I like Cortrex and it helps with energy. However I wish it had more herbal ingredients combined with the adrenal extract.
